Fifteen people from Plymouth, including our pastors, Reverends Kelle Brown and Steve Davis, joined with other faith communities at Gethsemane church on June 28 to recognize the strength and courage of Jose Robles on his 365th day in Sanctuary there. Songs, prayers, blessings and words for the road ahead from several different faith traditions reminded us of God’s call to say yes to love and no to violence as we stand with Jose and all immigrants, refugees and asylum seekers. Let us renew our commitment as individuals and as Plymouth Church to provide sanctuary and advocacy locally as well as at our borders.
Individual donations to support the Robles family can be made through Plymouth, marked for the Robles family, or through the Gethsemane website.
For more information or to contribute to Jose’s legal fund, please contact Carol Mooney.
Listen and learn
Listen to episodes of the podcast, “Sanctuary in Downtown Seattle,” which tell more about our sanctuary guest, Jose Robles, as well as other immigration issues. They are well done — informative, honest and thought-provoking. If you don’t have a podcast app on your phone, you can listen here. If you have questions about immigration and sanctuary, please talk with anyone on the Immigration Ministry Team —Carol Mooney, Plymouth Immigration Ministry Team
